During the Alboran Sea Experiment 1982 ('Donde va?') data sets from different remote sensing instruments were used to monitor the inflow of Atlantic water through the Strait of Gibraltar into the western Mediterranean Sea. Apart from data from the AVHRR on NOAA-7, information from the CZCS on Nimbus-7 were used to measure and to interpret ocean colour, and to compare satellite data with those collected from airborne radiometers and from ship-borne ground truth. The results indicate that water masses within the anti-cyclonic gyre formed east of Gibraltar can be clearly distinguished from the surrounding colder water both by sea surface temperature and by pigment distribution.
